Research Interests: 
Michael has recently completed his Ph.D. combining numerous techniques (seismic, remote sensing and submarine) to examine tectonic processes along the northern edges of pull-apart basins along the Dead Sea fault, using the northern Dead Sea as a case study. He received his M.Sc. from the Department of Geophysics and Planetary Sciences, Tel Aviv University, Israel, in hyperspectral remote sensing, atmospheric corrections and water quality (Magna Cum Laude). The research was carried out in cooperation with the GFZ, Potsdam Germany. Currently, he is working in cooperation with the University of Karlsruhe (Germany) on an interdisciplinary, multinational project.

Michael is the Minerva Dead Sea Research Center's expert on remote sensing and an expert on the tectonics of the Dead Sea.
